EW: You are aware that your views about psychiatry come across as pretty radical to a lot of people.
CRUISE: In the 1980s, you were supposed to say no to drugs. But when I say no to drugs, I'm a radical? 'He's against drugs -- he's a radical! He's against electroshock treatments -- he's a radical!' [Laughing] It's absurd!
EW: Yeah, but Scientology textbooks sometimes refer to psychiatry as a ''Nazi science''...
CRUISE: Well, look at the history. Jung wasan editor for the Nazi papers during World War II. [According to Aryeh Madenbaum, the director of the New York Center for Jungian Studies, this is not true.] Look at the experimentation the Nazis did with electric shock and drugging. Look at the drug methadone. That was
riginally called Adolophine. It was named after Adolf Hitler... [According
to the Dictionary of Drugs and Medications, among other sources, this is an urban legend.]
